Top 45 Best Colleges in India for Commerce in 2018

While selecting career after 10th, we often get to hear that, “Go for Science, there are vast career opportunities and handsome salary in this field”. What students know about Commerce is that there are very limited career options in this field. After 10+2 they can only go with B. Com, BBA, CA or CS. It’s not like that. There are vast career options for Commerce students after 10+2 as well as after Graduation. Also there is no compulsion of clearing any entrance exams as is there in Science and Mathematics except for some courses like CA and CS. What you have to do is to just clear the 12th.

Com provides an overview of all the subjects of commerce, B. Com (Honours) is a business oriented course and provides specialization in particular subject or field. This is the reason why B. Com (Honours) has a high value in industry.
